Introduction to Victim, Villain, and Savior

Published July, 2024

Degradation of Eros

When reception, penetration, and offering—the three noble aspects of Eros—are degraded by resentment and cut off from power, they become their fixed forms—victim, villain, and savior. They are then diametrically opposed to the aim of Eros. They become tools of separation and attempt to access power through finite means. The savior attempts to be paid in power by being needed; the victim attempts to extract power through charity; and the villain attempts to extort power from others. The issue is none of these aspects is working with actual power, so they continue to perpetuate themselves, rooted in a craving that never gets fed. Resentment is the result of thoughts grown in fear that were not tracked to the source.

Fear as Ally

The essence of fear is a great ally. When we meet it eye to eye with respect, it removes its mask and reveals itself as desire: the desire for us to know ourselves in our totality, to reclaim our humanity, to claim the calling of our heart. When we are securely nested in our desire, the power and potency of fear can be absorbed into this more powerful force. It becomes a tool for our Erotic realization rather than for the safety and maintenance of our limited identity.

Transforming Fear

As a result, our relationship with fear changes. We open to it, allow it in, allow it to do its work to protect and guide us. As a servant to desire, fear is an indispensable tool just as the rational mind is when it serves intuition.

Unity versus Separation

If we grow our identity in separation-based resentment, our identity will be fractured and as a result, separate into the three positions of victim, villain, and savior, rather than a unified whole. When unified, the three positions feed each other and are expressions of power appearing instead as reception, penetration, and offering.

Aspects of Eros

Reception is what absorbs the world; absorbs beauty, darkness, war, confusion, and love without filter. It is that quality of mind aimed to empty what is full. Penetration is the aspect of mind capable of cutting through the smog of tumescence to access essence—essence always being an expression of Eros, of love. Offering is the inherent call we feel to fill what is empty with the love we accessed in penetration.

Erotic Power and Play

These positions played out in Eros are of an entirely different nature. They are fun, eroticized opportunities to see dimensions of ourselves that could not otherwise be seen. This kind of play consciousness can only be employed by those abundant in Erotic power.
